We are wired for a good challenge. Every week you will be challenged in 4 key ways. If you get the challenges done, you move on to the next week. If you miss a challenge it is a strike, after 3 strikes, you can try again next time. Make it through 10 weeks, and you graduate. You can only wear a Fight Club band or T-shirt if you earn it through 10 challenging weeks. Are you up for a challenge?
Through Jesus Christ’s example, we can all experience an undeniable level of Grace through trial.
When left alone, we can drift. It is Biblical to have brothers help each other. Iron sharpens iron. Fight Club has accountability built into it on 3 levels. An accountability partner, a small group squad, and acquiring strikes. Whether you need to give up video gaming, Netflix watching, or other mindless activities, we need to be held accountable to do so.
Community is so important in growing men, but it is so easily missed. Camaraderie, is a core ingredient of Fight Club. The idea that “we’re in this together”, that there is a band of brothers supporting one another, is pure adrenaline in the veins of this ministry. In Fight Club, this is experienced in four main ways:
Through God’s provision and guidance, Matt Zappasodi and Bob Loy graduated Fight Club in 2014. They were “woken up” and shocked at how complacent they had become. They began leaning in to a desire to see men wake up. As of January 2018, FC414.club has successfully graduated over 350 men over 6 rounds. Men are waking up, fighting for their families, fighting for what is right, and making a difference. Grace Church (Noblesville), and CrossRoads Church (Kokomo) have opened up their facilities, and we are proud to be offering Fight Club as a next step under the ministry for men.
Fight Club is a 10-week journey where men are required to complete weekly challenges within the context of community and accountability. A 3-strike rule applies to all challenges. These challenges change weekly and cover spiritual, relational, and physical assignments, along with Scripture memory and many opportunities to try something new, sometimes intimidating, sometimes just-for-fun.
As a precursor to any weekly assignments, men who join are asked to sign the Fight Club Creed and commit to living by the Fight Club Guidelines.
It’s no secret that the disappearance of the Man is a cultural epidemic, affecting our homes, schools, workplaces, churches, and communities. With increasing desperation, the Church is working to remedy this, but many of our churches, despite their best efforts, are still failing to reach men. That’s because many methods used by churches are missing these indispensable masculine ingredients:
Pastor Jim Brown from Grace Community Church (Goshen, IN) started a men’s Bible Study, that was more. It was more than a casual conversation. He was tired of the absence of The Man in the home, the family, the community. He is all about, “don’t be that guy”. Here in Indianapolis, we are forever grateful for his commitment to see guys be better. Fight Club is a franchised ministry that is self-guided, but uniform across all Fight Club chapters. Fight Club Indy, (Grace Church, Noblesville) has not partnered with Grace Community Church in Goshen; rather, we are a chapter of the Fight Club ministry, following it’s guidelines operated independently.
